GUILFORD COUNTY — Guilford County Schools’ reassignment period for the 2021-22 academic year opens May 1 and closes July 1.

During the period, families may submit a request to attend schools outside of their attendance zone. Approvals and denials will be processed and communicated electronically through SchoolMint.

Parents may request to have their children attend a school other than their attendance zone school for a variety of reasons, and requests for transfers are considered based on the reason for the request and available space at the requested school. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from school for reassigned students.

For more information, contact the student assignment office at 336-370-8303 or email

Reassignment doesn’t apply to magnet schools. Magnet and choice applications are submitted between January and March for the following school year.
